This, I am sure, is of interest for this audience, the launch of a next generation biodiversity journal, Biodiversity Data Journal. It is well worth to look at this in the context that half of the scientific journals are now open access and certainly the EU is pushing hard in this direction too ( <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR8XUMuQ_tc&feature=youtu.be> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR8XUMuQ_tc&feature=youtu.be ). Furthermore, the routine submission of new names to IPNI, Zoobank helps to build those name servers, and the semantic markup helps to avoid the huge costs to open up the content of our journals to efficient text mining. I am looking forwards to see the content to show up immediately in the Linked Open Data Cloud.


"The  <http://biodiversitydatajournal.com/articles.php?id=995> Editorial, associated  <http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2013-09/pp-tbd091613.php> press release and the  <http://biodiversitydatajournal.com/browse_articles> twenty-four published papers give the readers an idea about the novel approaches implemented by BDJ and what the journal looks like in general."


Good read and all the best
